I'm trying really hard to stay low cal with my food. Problem is, I don't like ANY fruit and hardly any vegetables. I've tried and tried to force myself to eat fruits but I just can't do it, I become physically sick. I do have texture issues and just can't get past them. So I was wondering, is there anything else out there that I can put on my list of foods that I can eat  that aren't tuna, soup, and crackers?

Cottage cheese, oatmeal, extra lean ground beef, boneless/skinless chicken, ground turkey, turkey bacon, vegetables, low-fat yogurts/granola, eggs, whole wheat breads/rolls/bagels, fat free cream cheese...the list is endless really.  But if you're looking to cut calories, here is a link below that I have referred to at times that shows the healthier alternatives to those foods we like to consume.
